Jameela Jamil to Deliver 2020 Alternative MacTaggart Keynote


Jameela Jamil will deliver the Alternative MacTaggart at this year’s Edinburgh TV Festival (ETF).

The actor, podcast host, writer and advocate will share her experiences of working in television in the U.K. and the U.S. and using her platform to campaign for radical inclusivity, in conversation with writer and broadcaster Afua Hirsch.

Jamil said: “I really bloody love the Alternative MacTaggart talks, and to be asked to participate this year is a massive and frankly ridiculous honor.”

Previous Alternative MacTaggart speakers include Al Gore, Armando Iannucci, Charlie Brooker, Sharon Horgan, Russell Brand and Jeremy Corbyn.

The Edinburgh TV Festival has gone virtual for this year’s edition from August 24 to 27.
